When you add some shaved ice, sugar and milk to cream corn, it turns into a delicious frosty sweet. This is a quick to prepare snack that is easy to serve at casual summer get-togethers. A dessert to satisfy every sweet tooth.

This recipe serves 4.


  • 15 oz cream corn
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups evaporated milk or fresh cream
  • 40 ice cubes


  1. Spoon ½ cup cream corn and I Tbsp of sugar into each of the four dessert bowls. Adjust sweetness to taste.
  2. Pour ½ cup milk or cream into each bowl. Note that the evaporated already contains some sugar, so if you use cream, you need to add ½ Tbsp more sugar.
  3. Put ten ice cubes into the blender and whiz into shaved ice. Spoon the ice into the dessert.

    Shortcut tip: Prepare all 4 bowls with the corn, sugar and milk before shaving enough ice for all the bowls.
